Bitesize Prediction: Hearts vs Celtic – 26/01/22

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Two Scottish giants who should find the mood in their camp at a real high, Celtic will make the trip to Tynecastle Park when they meet Hearts on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, picking up some perfect momentum over the weekend as they cruised their way to a 5-0 romp against lower-league Auchinleck Talbot in the Scottish Cup, Hearts have continued to impress since making their Premiership return. Opening up the 2021/22 campaign with a stunning 2-1 win at home against Celtic, the Jambos are currently leading the chase to book a shock European finish. Last seen on top-flight duties picking up a deserved 2-1 win against St. Johnstone on January 18th, Robbie Neilson’s men have won each of their last four matchups across all formats. Gaining a reputation for their success in the final third, Hearts have also really impressed at Tynecastle this season. Aside from a 2-0 loss against defending champions Rangers last month, Wednesday’s hosts have lost just a single contest on home soil so far this season.

As for the visitors, while Celtic might have shown a host of issues when opening the 2021/22 campaign, the Hoops have now really found their feet under Head Coach Ange Postecoglou. Picking up a 2-1 win away at Alloa over the weekend and now enjoying an 11-match unbeaten run across all formats, it should also be noted that the former Melbourne Victory boss has seen his side win 10 of those 11 outings. Sat four points adrift of Rangers when they make the trip to Tynecastle on Wednesday night, the former champions have only continued to shine with their displays on the road. Remarkably, Celtic are unbeaten in each of their last 10 straight domestic away fixtures, a run that stems all the way back to September 19th. In a contest that could be another lively affair here, we’re backing both teams to find the net.

Bet: Both teams to score at hearts vs Celtic 8/11 for Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership battle @ 888sport
